Canon boosts mid- and high-end PIXMA printer line-up with new photo printers

PIXMA iP4600 Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 26th August, 2008: Canon is unveiling two new additions to its PIXMA range of photo printers with the arrival of the PIXMA iP3600 and PIXMA iP4600. Both have a contemporary design and are aimed at users looking for exceptional print quality with increased functionality.

The PIXMA iP3600 and PIXMA iP4600 offer 9600x2400dpi resolution and utilise Canon’s 1pl FINE print heads for the highest quality images and text documents. Both the PIXMA iP3600 and PIXMA iP4600 support Canon’s new ChromaLife100+ system, which combines the FINE print head, the new dye-based inks and genuine Canon photo papers to create longer-lasting prints.

The PIXMA iP3600 and PIXMA iP4600 both benefit from five Single Inks (pigment black, dye black, dye cyan, magenta and yellow). These provide superb colour reproduction and, as only the ink tank that has run out requires replacing, they offer great efficiency.

Photolab quality print speeds are impressive, with 10x15cm borderless prints available from the PIXMA iP4600 in approximately 20 seconds and from the PIXMA iP3600 in approximately 41 seconds. Both products include two paper trays, enabling increased paper capacity and allowing plain and photo paper to be loaded at the same time.
The PIXMA iP3600 and PIXMA iP4600 are PictBridge compatible for PC-less printing of photos from devices such as compatible mobile phones and digital cameras. The PIXMA iP4600 incorporates advanced media handling with DVD/CD printing on printable media and Auto Duplex function for double-sided printing.

Image enhancing software
Easy-PhotoPrint EX software, for Windows and Mac operating systems, has been included with the PIXMA iP3600 and PIXMA iP4600. This software is simple and straightforward to use and enables the creation of calendars, albums and assorted artwork. One of its key features is Auto Photo Fix, which is used for automatic photo enhancement and now includes improved red-eye correction.
